If you’re into identity, the Identity Open Space in Vancouver (July 20-21, 2006) may be an interesting event for you:
This Identity Open Space is being jointly produced by Liberty Alliance and a group of people who are leading participants in the Internet Identity Workshop. We hope to provide attendees with a highly interactive format in which to explore the topic of user-centric identity. (((It is not an Internet Identity Workshop - the next one will likely be in November.)))
The goal of this support a face-to-face space to continue the emerging, ever changing conversation around identity. Not every one can be everywhere. It is our hope that it will provide an opportunity for those in the northwest (Oregon, Washington State, British Columbia) from a variety of fields - socially good techies, Web 2.0 innovators, Identity Gang participants to meet face to face and dialogue.
Topics likely to be discussed at the conference represent the many identity issues experts are working on today including:
- technical standards and specifications,
- use cases for a range of industries
- applying existing or emerging applications or platforms,
- Social and policy issues.
- Your Topics Post on the IOSVan Suggested Topics.
I’ve always wanted to travel up north (Tomales Bay is the furthest I’ve ever been) so this might be a good chance.
Full disclosure: I am married to a Liberty Alliance employee.
